One Thing Better is a weekly feature we’re revving up here — featuring very cool creators I’m impressed with, in a one-question interview format.
It’s a simple premise. Each week someone will answer The Question.
It blew me away. In fact, it blew me wide open. You can’t help but come away from Mollie’s personal adventure enlarged. You come away feeling expansive.
I was so taken with the book I ran over to Amazon and spilled out a 5-star review. Amazon was stingy. I tried stealing an extra star or two, to no avail.
Still bursting with energy I skipped over to her Suddenly Awesome website and slobbered all over the comment section of a post like a happy puppy who knows no boundaries.
Here’s The Question:
What one thing have you been doing recently that’s making your life better?
That’s easy! I have been meditating every chance I get.
But wait — that answer makes no sense unless you know what I mean by meditating. So here’s the short explanation.
Yesterday as I sat in church there was a little girl sitting in front of me, facing me as she played with some strings. She kept staring at me, as kids will do, but possibly a bit more than usual since rather than participating in the service I was using this toddler-free time to sit quietly, palms raised, eyes mostly closed.
Though she didn’t say anything to me about what I was doing, after catching the third or fourth stare I imagined her asking a question I often ask myself, namely: what is meditation?
And then, very easily, it came.
“Meditation is when you stop thinking about whatever it is you may be thinking about, and take a moment to feel the feeling of feeling good.”
